Jim loved to go camping in Colorado and to get the family together to play cards and dominoes, and he could tell you what was in your hand, so you might as well lay it down. As his grandsons got involved in sports, Jim became a huge Rangers, Cowboys and Red Raider fan. Not to be forgotten was Jim’s love of Gunsmoke, Bonanza and Lonesome Dove. Jim loved his family and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
